I’ve never had dogs and cats at the same time. It looks like fun. I did once have a large land crab and a small tortoise in the same cage, but all we got out of that was the world’s slowest romance. The crab had not the slightest interest in being caught by the tortoise. I think you need dogs and cats to get truly humorous moments.
You’d think cats would be pretty quick to catch on that these are not living things. But then inanimate objects aren’t supposed to move, so maybe they are alive, after all…
They do the best they can, adapting to a whole world mismanaged by humans.
Cats don’t always play nice together. In fact, some of their interactions, as viewed by this human, are downright inscrutable. What’s going on? Only the cats know for sure.
I apologize for the music. It seems gremlins are providing music tracks for a lot of Youtube videos, these days.
Really, you never know what your cats are going to eat, or what’s going to make them say “It’s poop!” We try to give ours food that’s good for them and enjoyable to eat. Lots o’ luck with that. Your pet turtle will gobble up just about anything you give him. But cats, as the whole world knows, are picky.
Pay close attention to the cat that steals a whole plate of food.
Our cat Henry used to give a string of worry-beads the what-for, if he found it on the floor. I wonder if he thought it was a real snake. He certainly acted like he did.
At what point does the cat realize that the rubber snake is not a living thing? I dunno–I once saw a grown man flee in terror from a rubber snake. The cat, meanwhile, proceeds with caution…
Well, they’re not watching a lot of ca-ca on TV, at least… But I think you have to grant they have their own agenda. Always.
Those first two cats reminded me of my own Buster and Missy–only Missy would never have taken guff like that from Buster. Fur would fly! But only when we weren’t home.
Do you know anyone who loves to wrestle with a ball of yarn? That person is probably not quite all there.
Ah! But what has ever outdone yard as a cat toy? Kittens are especially fond of it. I wonder if my cats would enjoy trashing a ball of yard. But for me there might be adverse consequences if I let them do it…
Everybody knows why clothes were invented. It was to provide cats with cool things to play with–like bras, rolled-up socks, gloves, towels, etc. Also, some cats like to collect them. The cat with the biggest and most varied collection of clothes wins a Pulitzer Prize.
I love to watch a cat trying to figure out something that he’s never seen before. If you listen carefully, you can hear the wheels turning.
And I love to watch tiny puppies threaten mayhem–especially to inanimate objects.
And now to bed.
You just know you’re gonna grow up to have a hard life, if your cat beats you at table hockey.
Look at the fun cats can have with people-toys, when there are no paper bags or cardboard boxes–or purses left open–available.
I wish they’d play chess, though. Nobody to play it with, around here.
